Lately I’ve been frustrated with update managers and I decided to give GUIX OS a try. I know GUIX package installer works in Arch to some exted but I don’t have that kind of time on my hands to troubleshoot the Arch template.
For an easy install as an HVM Template:
- Download and verify from https://guix.gnu.org/download/
- qvm-create GUIX --class TemplateVM --label blue
2GB RAM, 2 cores, 20 GB SSD.
Give it the network card initialy (you can switch to the gateway after the install with the “flawed Netork Manager”) because it is a NetInstall.
- After the template creation you can clone whonix-ws-dvm into GUIX-ws and switch template to get more space or file exchange with Qubes (by switching templates).
I’m interested in the GUIX update manager more than the actual OS. I have found some software vulnerabilities already in the drivers but again… Please check it in the OS so we can speak the same language here.
